After having run a anti-spyware program and tried to restart the computer, it would not restart, I guess that some of the files that were infected and then deleted by the anti-spyware program were important.
Right now I am here at LP and using my Pc due to a CD that I have that allows me to run a sort of small operating system from CD to the memory-ram of the Pc, in other words, this operating system is in memory-ram not on the hard drive.
It has FireFox on it, so I am here on the Internet.
I do have a copy, should or might be a good or at least good enough copy maybe of my original WinXP installation on another hard drive and I also have the needed software to tranfer that WinXP installation onto this hard drive, as I use the other hard drive just for storage of the original WinXP installation just in case of problems such as I have right now.
I will do the fixing either later Tonight or some other day soon.
This is the very first time that I boot from CD an operating system (maybe, can't remember).
At first I had trouble getting on the Web.
This goes to show that when you learn enough about computers, you can still get on the web and also fix installation problems no matter what.
But you have to be ready from before, from before you have the computer problem(s).
I been ready for a long time, just so when I have Pc problems I can fix them.
I can't and won't give details about this CD boot operating system, as I really could not anyway as I don't remember how I made it.
But you might or should be able to do almost the same using a Linux CD.
Running an operating system from CD and then memory, might be safer for Internet browsing, maybe, but I am not sure, I don't know if malware could still get downloaded onto the hard drive or not.
I can even download and run programs as if the operating system was on the hard drive or at least many, but not all programs, I can also download and see pictures.
I just downloaded a poker game and installed it, but had to install it on the desktop, there are some limitations to what can be done when you run an operating system from CD onto ram and not use the hard-drive.
It is fun to test this and good for emergencies.
My Operating system shows here at LP right now as being WinXP, but it is not the regular WinXP from the hard-drive installation, but the WinXP from the CD installation to Live-Ram-Memory.
This is to only be used for emergencies, I don't think that it is legal for everyday use, but as I bought my computer with a WinXP intall on it, I guess that it is O.K., also it might not work if there is not already some kind of a WinXP installation on the hard drive, maybe even if it is not working right now as mine is not.
Some other time, I will delete these faulty WinXP installs and partitions and copy from another hard drive to this, what might be a good install, that is if that one is not also infected, that will have to be checked after the installation is transfered from one drive to the other.
At least I didn't lose any downloaded programs.
Otherwise, it might be time to try a brand new (Clean) Win 2000 Install or a WinXP one.
I might be getting used to booting WinXP from CD, that means that in the new future I might try to do the same using a Linux CD.
I do have a multiboot hard drive, that on it is sectioned with many partitions and copies of WinXP, but all were "Infected", I hope that the original WinXP copy on another hard drive is not also infected.
Sometime soon or on the next weekend I will check that.
